There is always change. No matter what the calendar illustrates as the current year, there are changes. Job changes are commonplace. Are they for the better?
Everyone’s job changes. Things shift, requirements transform, and the needs of the customer often get more demanding.
That means your job will change.
Habits are hard to break. Good or bad. Chances are great that what you’ll do today is connected to a habit.
A habit is something that you are familiar with. It is often a pattern, a collection of recurring choices which lead to pathways that lead to outcomes.
People have a morning habit, a dinner habit, and even a weekend habit. Get some coffee, have some left-overs, visit the recycle center.
Regardless of how loose or how fitting, you find your life is connected to a lot of habits.
Do you love your job? Do you get inspired by your work? Are you hoping for more opportunity, tougher challenges, and a chance to really show what you’ve got?
When you find a reason to commit to doing your best work your interest level changes. You develop more energy and appreciate the feeling of a job well done. It can happen with your chores at home or your daily grind at the workplace.
It is about what you do. It’s your habit.
This is true because when someone tries to change your flow, you’re probably not happy.
People often say, “I don’t know what I want to do when I grow up.”
Maybe they are doing it. Maybe you are doing it. Right now.
Every job change, every pivot, shift, or revamp is your opportunity.
When you commit to engagement, you’ll develop more satisfaction. When change is an opportunity, you’ll find reasons to embrace it.
It’s easy to love what you do.
